Day 1 surely belongs to India. India trail by runs with 10 wickets remaining here! Great innings though from Curran as he departs for 78 and gives some sort of respectability to this England total.
They are dismissed for here and Indian openers will have 15 minutes to survive here. He was a dead duck once he didn't get any bat on that.
But he has done well here, departs for 17 and has done his job. The partnership is up here between Broad and Curran after just 43 balls.
Absolutely smashed by Curran and it goes all the way for a maximum. Hits through the line and connects well, it goes all the way and also helps England reach Fine bowling though as the ball comes back in sharply and wraps Rashid on the pads, who looks to play across the line.
Finally, the partnership is broken and what a shot from Ali - horrible to say the least. He goes for the slog sweep here after playing so well.
Gets a top edge on that and Bumrah takes a good catch, running forward and getting in the dive. Delight for India as Ali departs for India survive yet another over here and the score moves onto 7 runs.
They are edging closer to here! Umpire turns it down though but India go for a review, rightly so given only two wickets are left.
The ball had just brushed the front pad and that saves Broad as he had gotten his front leg outside the line of stumps. The pitch has also considerably eased out for batting here!
